A little bummed that the spring discount doesn't include the Poly CL (I was going to use it to justify upgrading), but I'm not complaining. Hopefully I can get a room request honored to be in Samoa so I can get in one of the refurbished rooms. I figure it's probably my best bet for being finished when we check in on May 13.

I was able to apply the discounts announced today and saved $949.61 on our June Poly trip. Bringing the cost down that much puts a big smile on my face and cements my decision to stay here. Yeah!

Congrats on the savings! I used the last discount to get 35% off for our trip in a few weeks. I was thrilled. It does make you feel more justified in staying at Poly, doesn't it!

I tried to look up info about the spring discount and is it only 20% and are people having any luck booking GV rooms with it?

With the updated schedule, we may have to request a different house than Samoa for our 2/28-3/8 stay. Tokelau? Patio or 3rd look balcony?.....

I am not exactly sure what the discount did - but I was able to save $350 from my club booking at the end of April/beg May. I know that it is not that much and but every little bit helps. Might be worth it to reprice online or give them a call just to see!

Yes it sure is! We got a 35% off pin for our September trip and since this is our first time staying here it makes it that much more magical! This has been our dream resort to stay at since our first trip in 1998! I am SO EXCITED!!

Tokelau is our favorite non-CL longhouse. Great location, big rooms, all balconies or patios, etc. I've done 3rd floor balcony facing the quiet pool and it was lovely. We even had a bit of a castle view if we looked all the way to the right through the trees This time I'm just requesting anything on the quiet pool side because I don't mind which floor. A patio would be nice too.

Disney's website

The website for reservations is crap right now! Somehow it made two package ressies for me and I can't get any one to pick up on the phone! Plus, the site won't make dining reservations. Hopefully I will get someone real soon to straighten all this out.
